Swedish House Mafia post cryptic countdown likely leading to first official reunion announcementSwedish House Mafia Ultra 2018 DA

Brace yourselves, Swedish House Mafia‘s first official announcement since their momentous reunion at Ultra earlier this year might finally be here.

Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell have each posted the same cryptic countdown to social media, directing fans to Swedish House Mafia’s website, where a clock is ticking towards Monday, October 22 at noon EST. The date coincides with the group’s sophomore album, Until Now. While speculation around the group’s movements has been a constant in the dance music news cycle since their hiatus-ending performance in March, a few things regarding the Mafiosos full return are already certain.

The trio have been confirmed to be in the studio together, tantalizing posters have started cropping up in major cities across the world, and most recently, Steve Angello confirmed the Mafia would make their way to Ultra Mexico in 2019. Judging by the writing already on the wall, the countdown likely leads to a significant announcement from the group — either new music, confirmed performance dates, or a rumored Nike collaboration, might finally materialize on October 22. It seems the Swedish House Mafia waiting game could officially be nearing its conclusion.

The buzz around Swedish House Mafia‘s reunion continues to grow louder each day. The famed trio has confirmed they’re in the studio, with members Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso hanging up their duo project to focus on their work as Swedish House Mafia. Remaining member Steve Angello has been driving a hype train of his own, recently confirming the trio’s appearance at Ultra Mexico in 2019 during his performance at this year’s festival.

During his solo set at the Toluca festival the second weekend of October, Angello took to the mic to give the festival-goers some exciting news. “Mexico, I’ll see you next year with Swedish House Mafia,” he announced to an enthusiastic crowd.

While rumors of a Swedish House Mafia world tour have been circulating since earlier this summer, Angello’s announcement marks the first verbal confirmation of its reality.

The Mafia can no longer move in secret, and it appears perhaps they’ve given up on trying. The cat’s out of the bag.

Swedish House Mafia‘s 2019 comeback is imminent, and now Steve Angello has confirmed the trio are in the studio together working on new music. Rumors of a reunion started the moment they took the stage at Ultra in March, and now with mysterious ads, possible big brand partnerships looming, and festivals already lining up to host a potential Swedish House Mafia performance, it looks like Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello are aiming to pick back up right where they left off. The only thing missing was confirmation of impending studio work and now Angello has put us at ease. The Size Records helmer recently told Swedish news publication Dagens Nyheter

“Yes, absolutely, Swedish House Mafia is back. Now during summer everyone is traveling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more, but we’ve decided that: ‘Here we go.’”

During the trio’s comeback performance earlier this year, fans had already spotted unidentified originals placed throughout the set — perhaps a fully fleshed-out Swedish House Mafia release is also underway in 2019.

Since the short lived return of EDM’s most storied trio, Swedish House Mafia, speculation surrounding their next move has been spreading like wildfire. Details of a full scale reunion are beginning to slowly trickle out, and it looks like the three veteran superstars may have some special commemorative gear on the way too, possibly courtesy of Nike.

Recently, Sebastian Ingrosso stoked the fire by uploading a telling photo to Twitter — a t-shirt touting three Nike swooshes across the back, reminiscent of the Mafia’s three dot calling card. A few months ago, right around the time of the group’s larger-than-life reunion performance, pictures surfaced of similarly-SHM-fashioned Nike sneakers. The recurring photos point to a potential partnership of some sort, though its too early to say if Nike was tapped for tour merchendise, a capsule collection, or something entirely different.

While nothing is substantive yet, the recent revamping of Swedish House Mafia’s now-empty merch store could be another nod in Nike’s direction. Stay tuned.

Swedish House Mafia’s Instagram scrubbed lending credibility to extended reunion rumors

Here we go again — Swedish House Mafia‘s Instagram has been cleared of all of its photos, so don’t pack away your black deep v-necks just yet. The last time the trio’s social media presence logged this type of activity was just ahead of their reunion at Ultra Music Festival in Miami after a five year hiatus. The updates from the group’s dormant profiles were quickly noticed by fans and abruptly batted down as routine cleaning by manager Amy Thompson, though as the not-so-secret reunion inched closer, it was obvious that the social media audit signaled the beginning of the Mafia’s return.

Swedish House Mafia’s Facebook and Twitter pages remain intact for now, however the group’s freshly wiped Instagram, including all of the images from their historic assembly in March, has the rumor mill buzzing all over again. Are Axwell, Ingrosso, and Steve Angello ready to pick up the Swedish House Mafia banner once more? Steve Angello is hot off the release of his long-awaited solo opus Humanwith two additional versions of the album expected to drip out over the summer and fall. In conjunction with the album however, Angello is also offering a lifetime pass to get into any of his solo performance across the world. Perhaps the specification of “solo” points to potentially collaborative shows in the future? Beyond that, fans have identified two new, yet-to-be-named tracks from the group’s performance at Ultra, and with cryptic hints from Tomorrowland at another appearance from the trio, we may be looking at full reunion run in the making.

Is Tomorrowland cryptically teasing a Swedish House Mafia performance?

For months, Ultra Music Festival had been saying “expect the unexpected” leading up to its 20th anniversary celebration. While many believed the phrase to mean Daft Punk was planning a return to the festival circuit, viral rumors all but confirmed a Swedish House Mafia reunion. After all, the iconic Swedish trio hadn’t performed together since their One Last Tour in 2013, with Steve Angello stating to HuffPost, “I just wasn’t having fun anymore. It was this humongous monster. We felt…tired.”

In addition to premiering three unreleased songs at Ultra 20, Axwell concluded their set by saying, “We are Swedish House Mafia for life this time.” Steve Angello’s talent manager, Scooter Braun, then took to his Instagram story following the set, and hinted, essentially confirming that Sunday’s SHM reunion was “the beginning” of something much larger.

I think it’s more or less confirmed that this was not a one time thing

Fans immediately began speculating over whether an arena world tour was in the works, or a possible summer festival run, despite the fact that most large festival bookings have been finalized for the 2018 season.

Following the SMH reunion at Ultra Miami last weekend, Tomorrowland may have further fueled fan hopes when they posted an image of the Belgian festival’s main stage on Twitter with the caption, “expect the unexpected.” The tagline is the exact same phrase that Ultra used when announcing the “secret guest” slot for it’s 20th edition.

Nothing has been confirmed, and the tweet has since been deleted, but the coin of phrase has sparked controversy that another secret guest appearance by SHM may be in the programming for Tomorrowland’s 2018 edition, “The Story Of Planaxis.”
