Daft Punk is splitting up after 28 years

Daft Punk, the influential electronic group, is calling it quits after 28 years. The duo announced their retirement in a video Monday morning titled “Epilogue.”

The video features a clip from the band’s 2006 film “Electroma,” and features a photo of their hands under the caption “1993-2021.” Kathryn Frazier, Daft Punk’s publicist, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. 

The duo — Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter — began making music together under the personae in 1993. They were widely known for their robot costumes, which they began wearing in public appearances in the 2000s.
