French electronic music stars Daft Punk have announced their split up through a video titled ‘Epilogue’, ending one of the era’s defining dancefloor acts. The duo, whose real names are Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, introduced themselves on the world stage with the album ‘Homework’ in 1997 and established a unique identity with their ever-present robot helmets.

Over the course of their nearly three-decade run, Daft Punk went through many ups and downs in their career. The group released its first album ‘Discovery’ in 2001. It was this time then the musicians skyrocketed and their Daft Punk’s signature look took over the fashion world. 

Daft Punk’s third album, ‘Human After All, arrived in 2005 and became an instant hit. The band then embarked on their ambitious and groundbreaking ‘Alive’ tour the following year. A live album, Alive 2007, capturing the group’s 2007 show at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy arena in Paris, was released later that year.    

Although the singers took an eight-year-gap to release their next proper studio album, still they managed to compose a score for Disney’s ‘Tron: Legacy’ in 2010. The band released its biggest song ever in 2013, titled ‘Get Lucky’. The song was from Daft Punk’s fourth and final album ‘Random Access Memories’. 

Daft Punk left an indelible mark on the global pop landscape.
