The Swedish House Mafia’s Rise to Fame and the Split:
After they split in 2012, the trio had revealed that they were back together in 2018 at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami and the fans have been anticipating to hear from them ever since. But it was supposed to still take considerable time to set up new management and manage all the discrepancies so they can start making new music.
Before the unfortunate breakup, The DJ supergroup had managed to make an extensive mark in the EDM world with their elaborate live shows and reached heights that other DJs could only dream of.
Back stronger than ever with a Weeknd Collaboration:
But the breakup is now news of the past as the band seems to be back with greater fervor and are now even more keen to make their presence known. Their much-awaited return had already made the eager fans crazy but the celebrations don’t end here.
The Swedish house mafia’s new song features an exciting collaboration with the Weekend. The trio’s upbeat style paired with the weekend’s contemporary dark music was the perfect amalgamation for “Moth to a Flame”. The weekend and Swedish house mafia even have the same management team now. Axwell filled in all about how the Toronto-based superstar was driven by inspiration saying that He said he hadn’t made any notes but just looked at messages on his phone.
Exciting World Tour:
With the release of the new song, the Swedish house mafia shared the exciting news of their world tour in 2022 with 44 stops including Paris, Madrid, Toronto, Houston, Vegas, London, and Miami. They will also be able to relish the sweet memory of being the first DJ act to have sold out all of Madison Square Garden where they will be returning in 2022.
Did Their Time Apart Do Them Good?
The pandemic gave the Swedish House mafia ample time to perfect their work or even keep up with their slow pace. They are known for being perfectionists and look like all their hard work in Sweden has done them good.
Angello made an interesting revelation about how they have made more songs these past couple of years after coming back together from the split than they did in all of their 20 years. This is very true and looks like the split gave the band what they needed the most.
The time apart resonated soundly with the band members and it seems they all had the right realizations and summoned their true power as a team. Angello explained that when you’re running 100 miles an hour you don’t have the time to reflect but when you slow down and let time pass you by you will inherently be able to comprehend all the intricacies. He gathered that all the things that tore the band apart lost their significance with time.
Though Angello shied away from disclosing exactly why the band split up he did go on to say that the band was motivated to step out of their comfort zone and put aside all their differences so they can truly prove their tremendous worth. Let’s hope they are back rocking live shows in their scheduled world tour. We can not wait!
