Daft Punk have hung up their masks.
On Monday night (02/22), the Grammy Award-winning electronic duo started the week with the release of their 8-minute film Epilogue, directed by frequent collaborator Warren Fu, to announce their split. The reason behind their decision to part ways is unclear.

Composed of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Daft Punk formed in Paris in 1993 to later become one of the most influential and popular electronic acts in the world to launch the underground house scene to higher ground.
They brought forth the unforgettable hits 'Around the World', 'One More Time', 'Get Lucky', and 'Da Funk', and scored the soundtrack for the 2010 film Tron: Legacy.

Daft punk :/— ena mori 🍓 (@enamorimusic) February 22, 2021
Kakaibang saya yung makatsamba ng "bagong episode" nito noon sa MTV. Hindi ko alam ang tamang order, at ni hindi ko napanood ang kabuuan. Ngayong on-demand na tayong makanood ng MVs, mas espesyal na lalo sa 'kin ang bahaging yon ng pagkabata.https://t.co/IuxRXbXAt4— 𝔹𝕃𝕂𝔻 (@imBLKD) February 22, 2021

“Daft Punk - Discovery” was the first album I ever bought.— Zedd (@Zedd) February 22, 2021
“One More Time” is the first electronic song I ever fell in love with.
I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Daft Punk.
Long live the kings that paved the way for EDM 🙌

i’m so thankful for the music they took the time to give us and the visuals that were so beyond our time.
my 10-year-old self's playlist was Hamster Dance, Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport, and this. Daft Punk helped so many of us head in the right direction https://t.co/Zx8Dd30NZq— ryan (@ryanhemsworth) February 22, 2021
