MUSIC: Axwell /\ Ingrosso are "splitting" to focus on Swedish House Mafia.
If ever the words "every cloud..." were relevant it's now, as EDM legends Axwell ^ Ingrosso have sadly announced they are going to put their joint project on hold.
The good news is, this is a result is the return of Swedish House Mafia.
Speaking to Swedish magazine Metro, Sebastian Ingrosso said they were ready to reunite with Steve Angello to reform SHM and now is the right time.
“We felt it was time, and we missed it" he said. "And above all, we had fans who wanted us to reunite.”
He also said they're going to be back in the studio very soon to “try to do something fun together.”
When asked why Swedish House Mafia were reforming so soon, he said "I do not think it has been so short time. Me and Axel did our thing and Steve did their thing, and Axel and I felt we had done our thing for five years. We felt it was time we missed it. And above all, we had fans who wanted us to reunite. Then we felt that, fan, we have to do it, they stand here and ask to see us again, maybe they will not do all our lives".
Axwell /\ Ingrosso's album "More Than You Know" is out now.
