Axwell denies Swedish House Mafia reunion rumors; claims tweet was photoshop

The past 24 hours have been a whirlwind of emotions for Swedish House Mafia fans. Late yesterday, screenshots began circulating the web of a deleted Axwell tweet hinting at the return of Swedish House Mafia. The tweet read “The countdown to a new era has begun. Never too late to get back on track.”

Combined with a new logo containing the letters AIA and a date marked for Ultra 2017 (where the trio performed their final performance in 2013), it seemed all to certain that something was going to happen with SHM in 2017.

Now, however, Axwell has responded to the rumors claiming that the tweet was photoshopped. He wrote on Twitter this morning: “Doesn’t take much more than a wise guy with photoshop to start a rumor.”


This is the second time Swedish House Mafia reunion rumors have surfaced in 2016 (and consequently been debunked). Back in July, YouTube curator Proximity shared news of a suspected Swedish House Mafia tour in 2017 before Axwell Ingrosso officially denied the rumor, saying “At this point we’re not planning on reuniting and we have really no further comments on what the future for SHM looks like.”
