Arcade Fire have parted ways with Maverick Management's Scott Rodger after their 13-year partnership
Arcade Fire have split from Maverick Management's Scott Rodger after more than a decade working together.
The 'Reflektor' rockers' 13-year partnership with Rodger has come to an end, and he has praised the innovative multi-instrumentalists for their impact on the music industry in a touching statement announcing that they have parted ways.
He said: ''It's been the greatest pleasure of my professional career working and collaborating with Arcade Fire and everyone on their team.
''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.''
Rodger has worked with the group across five albums, including their 2011 Grammy Award winning record 'The Suburbs', which earned them the prize for Album of the Year.
That year, Rodger defended the band after marketing and music executive Steve Stoute claimed Justin Bieber and Eminem had been been snubbed for the prize.
Speaking at the time: ''We didn't lobby any organization for this nor did the band play the game... We paid our own overhead to do the event, thus the lack of on stage gimmicks. No label picked up the tab.''
The manager - who co-founded Maverick, who also look after Sir Paul McCartney and Lily Allen - added that the group is ''in control of their own destiny''.
He said: ''Arcade Fire are now one of the biggest live acts in the world. It's not all about record sales. It's about making great records and it's about building a loyal fan base ... On top of that, they own their own masters and copyrights and are in complete control of their own destiny.''
