Daft Punk, the pioneering electronic dance music duo, have divided.
The band announced the news of their split in a video titled”Epilogue” on Monday, and the group’s publicist Kathryn Frazier affirmed the news to Pitchfork, though no reason was given for their own split.
Daft Punk was a French duo comprising artists Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel p Homem-Christo, and the band was together since 1993, collaborating with dozens of musicians like Kanye West, The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams and Giorgio Moroder, to list a few, as well as written the musical score for Disney’s”Tron: Legacy.”
The band throughout their career hidden their identities behind glistening robot masks, whether on stage, in videos or on awards shows. Although they were together for near three decades, the group was often reclusive, touring sporadically, seldom doing press and only putting out four commercial records (and the soundtrack for”Tron: Legacy”) in their long career. The band’s affinity for 70s disco, house music, funk. Album rock and electro synthpop and more proved to be influential for a generation of contemporary musicians.
Daft Punk’s debut album”Homework” released in 1997 and produced hits such”Da Funk” and”Around the World,” and they’d record music videos with filmmakers like Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Roman Coppola. Their follow up album”Discovery” elevated them to global stardom and critical acclaim behind the singles”One More Time” and”Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.”
Watch the video announcement, which will be excerpted from their 2006 film”Electroma,” above.
