Swedish House Mafia are officially reforming

Swedish House Mafia have officially announced plans to reunite next year.

The group, which parted ways in 2012, will play their first headline show at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on May 4, 2019.

In a live-streamed press conference on Monday, they confirmed they would also be touring with new music, but didn't give any further details about where and when.

Speaking entirely in Swedish, the three DJs, who influenced a whole generation of electronic dance music stars, stated that further gigs would be announced at an unknown date.

They added that their individual music projects would be put on hold while they worked together.

While not giving any clues about what to expect from their future tour, they admitted the response to their Miami reunion gig in March 2018 had made them think about making a comeback.

The group - comprised of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso - became one of the biggest house DJ acts ever after coming together in 2008.

They have been nominated for two Grammys; one in 2012 for Save the World and another in 2013 for Don't You Worry Child.

Tickets for the Stockholm next year's gig go on sale on Saturday 27th October.
