STOCKHOLM -- Swedish House Mafia, a massively popular DJ group, said on their website that they would call it quits after an upcoming tour.
"Today we want to share with you, that the tour we are about to go on will be our last," the Swedish trio, who began performing together in 2008, wrote on their official website late Saturday.
"We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on this journey. We came, we raved, we loved," they added.
The trio, Axwell (Axel Christofer Hedfors), Steve Angello (Steven Angello Josefsson Fragogiannis) and Sebastian Ingrosso, last year became the first ever electronic dance act to play at Madison Square Garden, and sold out the legendary New York arena in a matter of minutes.
The three Swedes are set to kick off their final tour next month and said their next-to-last show would be held on home turf, in Stockholm, on November 24.
"The final leg of this journey will be announced in August," they said.
The trio did not explain why they were bringing their massive success to an end, but Swedish daily Expressen cited sources saying they all wanted to spend more time with their families.
"All three in the band have children, and several weddings are lined up," the paper reported.
