It's been a few months since Swedish House Mafia drew their "final curtain" at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. It seems like the trio has left the world behind, each revealing new music and projects separately - until now. A new website has emerged called leavetheworldbehind.com, and connects with a Tumblr page, which features numerous images and gifs from a new cryptic video starring Axwell.
Where does Swedish House Mafia fit into all of this? Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso have been promoting the hashtag #leavetheworldbehind via Twitter, by tweeting and Instagramming photos in connection with the site. What's even more, is that Axwell has posted a video, starring himself, titled "Lune 'Leave The World Behind.'"
The video lasts 11 seconds, and features Axwell, who appears lost at sea or leaving the world behind somewhere on a boat.
A video has also been posted starring Sebastian Ingrosso. We can only expect that a third video will surface featuring Steve Angello.
Although there has been no tweets from the Swedish House Mafia Twitter account, their Facebook page has two recent posts on it. One of the posts being a simple "..." and the other, the 11 second Axwell video with a link to leavetheworldbehind.com.
What does this mean SHM?! Well, it's hard to say. There has been some speculation amongst fans that it's a Swedish House Mafia documentary or perhaps a tour DVD, but there is no official word. Only that "Leave The World Behind" world premieres on May 17th. Until then, we can only imagine.
Oh, those Swedes. They know how to keep fans on the edge of their seats!
