You Daft Punk, the electronic music band composed by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, confirmed the end of the project.
The announcement was made this Monday, with the publication of a video on social networks entitled Epilogue (“Epilogue”). Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter confirmed the separation 28 years after the project started.

In it, the two producers are seen in their robot suits each following their own path in the desert, until one explodes the other.

The duo was formed in 1993 and is still today one of the biggest names in music house French. The band managed to transcend the barriers of musical genres and became one of the icons of pop music.
The debut album 2Homework ”is one of his biggest hits, with themes like“ Around the World ”and“ Da Funk ”. “Discovery”, in 2001, and “Human After All”, in 2005, also captivated the fans, who were raptured in 2013 with the release of the duo’s last album: “Random Access Memories”.
