After a series of mysterious Instagram posts from XS Las Vegas containing the same stark black-and-white design and with the same font used in promotional materials for Swedish House Mafia, rumors began circulating that the trio might have a date or residency at the Vegas club. In a sense, things align. Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso have announced individual residencies with the Wynn Nightlife group over the past two days. It is expected Axwell will be announcing his residency tomorrow.

It has not been made clear whether or not the trio will actually perform as an act like the marketing implies, but it seems the marketing is coincidental and their singular announcements suggest solo performances. Each year, Wynn Nightlife announces a full roster of exclusive artists for the upcoming year. Given Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso are the group’s first announcements for 2019, Wynn Nightlife is certainly off to a big start.

2019 is the year of Swedish House Mafia‘s return after a five-year hiatus. The trio has continuously made music industry headlines since announcing nine shows in the upcoming year after their momentous reunion at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have announced residencies with Wynn Nightlife, and longtime manager Amy Thomson announced her departure as Swedish House Mafia’s manager with a touching post.

It has now been revealed that Ron Lafitte of Patriot Management will be taking Thomson’s reins in working with the trio moving forward. Lafitte started his career working in heavy metal with the likes of Metallica and Megadeth. He now oversees everyone from Pharrell Williams and OneRepublic, to the Backstreet Boys. The dance titans have not announced a label deal as of yet, but it has all but been confirmed that they are working on new music.

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x

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.

Sebastian Ingrosso ignites Swedish House Mafia hype teasing possible Nike partnership

Sebastian Ingrosso ignites Swedish House Mafia hype teasing possible Nike partnershipSwedish House Mafia 1

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.
