They released a video Epilogue to announce their exit from the industry. The duo; Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, walk in the desert in their signature costumes. Later in the video, one of the pair exploded after walking away.

Formed in 1993 Paris, Daft Punk’s major contribution for bringing French underground music to the charts resonates over the decade. They started wearing their iconic helmets and jackets in 2001, being extremely publicity-shy themselves. Plus, it added mystery to their personae. Over the years, they won 6 out of 12 Grammy nominations over the years.

They were also involved with film projects such as Electroma (2006) which was premiered in Cannes. Their song in Tron: Legacy (2010) was a hit along with their brief cameo. They also collaborated with The Weeknd, Kanye West, and Pharell Williams.
Fans worldwide are mourning the separation but are grateful for their artistic contribution for almost three decades. Fellow artists like Pharell Williams and Don Diablo made tributes via Twitter on how their absence will be felt significantly. Many others made tributes through fan-arts and videos to show appreciation to the iconic duo.

Publicist Katheryn Frazier provided no explanation for the split but many are speculating that they simply have been active long enough for a well-earned rest. They paved the way and inspired so many artists that it is simply time to pass the baton to the new generation.
