Daft Punk Announce Split With Eight-Minute Epilogue Video

It’s the end of an era. French EDM duo Daft Punk have called it quits after 28 years together by releasing an eight-minute ‘Epilogue’ video.

The clip opens with a long shot of the pair in custom Daft Punk racing suits and their iconic robot helmets as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter slowly walk through a windy desert scape.

As Homem-Christo strides with purpose in the video, Bangalter hangs back and eventually stops, with the distance between them growing. After a final look backwards to his partner, Homem-Christo returns and looks Bangalter in the helmeted face as he strips off his black jacket and turns around to reveal a control panel in his back.

With just the sound of the wind swirling around them, Homem-Christo opens the panel, flips a switch and sets off a beeping one-minute countdown that gets louder as Bangalter walks away and then braces for self-destruction.

The group’s publicist Kathryn Frazier confirmed that the French duo had indeed called it a day although she gave no reason for the split.

The video ends with the image of one silver and one gold hand making the shape of a triangle over the years 1993-2021 as a setting sun blazes to the strains of their song “Touch” from what would be their final album, 2013’s Random Access Memories.

Watch the “Epilogue” video below
