DAFT Punk has decided to hang up their helmets and call it a career as the popular duo revealed the news with a short clip titled “Epilogue.”
The pair, formed by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, had major success, most known for their single Get Lucky in 2013.

The group’s publicist officially confirmed the split to Variety.
Daft Punk, who have always made sure to keep their looks hidden, took to YouTube to drop the head-turning news as the video features Thomas and Guy walking around the desert in their now well-known helmets.
One of the helmet-clad men then looks at the other, takes off his leather jacket and shows off an energy pack on this back.
The other member then touches the button, walks away and explodes.
Things wrap up on a sober note as we are quickly taken to a scene featuring a sun as Daft Punk’s song Touch begins to play.
While Thomas and Guy began making music in the early ’90s, they reached their peak thanks to their 2013 album Random Access Memories, which of course led to them to worldwide recognition thanks to their song Get Lucky and their Grammy Award for Best Album.
In 2016, Daft Punk returned to team up with The Weeknd on two other big time hits on his Starboy album: the title track and I Feel it Coming.
