Swedish House Mafia have split with their longtime manager barely five months since they returned to live performing.

Amy Thomson, who has worked with the dance supergroup since 2004, has thanked the band in what is an amicable separation.

“I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end,” said Thomson in an Instagram post.

“And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart.”

Thomson went on to reveal that she broke the news to "the boys" back in May and that she will be leaving her job of 14 years at the end of the summer.

 

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x

The band are currently planning their fully-fedged comeback, after reuniting on stage at Ultra Music Festival in March.

Steve Angello recently confirmed Swedish House Mafia would be embarking on a worldwide tour in 2019.

"It's happening, obviously," he said in an interview with Swedish publication Sydsvenskan. “Not all the details are set, but we will be back in 2019."
