French Duo Grammy-winning dancers, Daft Punk announce their split after 28-years

Grammy-winning electronic music duo, Daft Punk has announced that they’re breaking apart after 28 years.

The helmet-wearing French duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, shared the information in an eight-minute video referred to as Epilogue after an incredible career boasting 4 chart-topping albums and 6 Grammy wins.

Kathryn Frazier, the band’s longtime publicist, confirmed the breakup.

Daft Punk, comprised of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, have had main success over the years, successful six Grammy Awards and launching worldwide hits with One More Time, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and Get Lucky.

The breakup comes eight years after Daft Punk, formed by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter in 1993, released their last album Random Access Memories, featuring the track Get Lucky which topped the charts worldwide.

Their debut release Homework in 1997 featured the chart-topping hits Around the World and Da Funk.

The pair discussed their music style in an uncommon interview with Interview Magazine in 2001, with Thomas saying: ‘We incorporate a lot of American and English-based influences, however, take them completely out of context. 

‘The way we listen to Chicago house music, disco, heavy metal or punk is completely artistic, without the political side of it. 

‘But then we used it in a political way ourselves, which is making music at home, recycling and by combining those styles at home and doing it in a very new way.’
