Swedish House Mafia disbanding: ‘We came, we raved, we loved’

06.24.12 5 years ago

The members of Swedish House Mafia are moving on to other criminal enterprises.

The supergroup – made up of DJ/producers Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso – announced they’re disbanding on their official website over the weekend. The message in its entirety reads:

“Today we want to share with you, that the tour we are about to go on will be our last. We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on this journey. We came, we raved, we loved. – Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso a/k/a Swedish House Mafia”

The trio formed in late 2008 and subsequently put out a number of successful dance singles, including “Miami 2 Ibiza (feat. Tinie Tempeh)” and “Save the World,” both of which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart.

The group headlined the Dance Arena at this weekend’s free two-day Radio 1 concert in East London. The event, organized as part of the London 2012 festival, also saw artists including Jay-Z, Rihanna, Jack White, Lana Del Rey, Kanye West, Florence + the Machine and Dizzee Rascal take the stage.

The Mafias’ upcoming concert dates are listed below. More are due to be announced in August.
