Watch Swedish House Mafia Tease Fans in New ‘Leave The World Behind’ Clip, Announce SXSW Premiere
By Scott T. Sterling
EDM fans are still lamenting the loss of dance music super-group Swedish House Mafia, which shocked the world in 2012 by disbanding while the band was still at the peak of its’ powers and popularity.
That fan devotion is highlighted in a new clip from the forthcoming documentary, Leave the World Behind, which chronicles SHM’s final “One Last Tour,” as the trio of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso traveled the globe on a massive farewell jaunt.
In the clip, Axwell and Angello are seen trying to comfort an autograph-seeking fan overwhelmed by the pair’s presence to the point of tears by joking with her about “the drop” that happens in the band’s hit 2010 song, “One.” Their playfulness elicits a smile through her tears, but she can’t help but gush, “I love you guys so much” from behind her hand.
It’s the first in a series of pre-release teasers set to roll out on new website, leavetheworldbehind.com, where visitors can also view the film’s official trailer and sign up for updates.
The site launch also allowed SHM to announce the movie’s world premiere, which is now scheduled to happen on March 12 at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas, during the annual SXSW music conference.
