Arcade Fire have parted company with their long-time manager Scott Rodger from the UK branch of the Maverick artist management group. But don’t worry, it all seems amicable. Not that that helps music business news bulletins with Beef Of The Week slots to fill every Friday, but I guess that’s not your problem.

“We have parted ways amicably with our long-time manager Scott Rodger”, the band wrote on Facebook. “He has been an amazing shepherd and a true friend over the last twelve years. We wish to thank him deeply for all his hard work, blood, sweat and tears, and wish him nothing but the best”.

Rodger added in a statement: “It’s been the greatest pleasure of my professional career working and collaborating with Arcade Fire and everyone on their team”.

He went on: “They are by far the most important band of their generation and have produced some of the most inspiring music of any time. It’s with the deepest love and respect that I wish the band all the very best in their future endeavours and very much look forward to seeing what they come up with next”.
