The legendary French electronic music duo Daft Punk has split up, with the pair’s publicist Kathryn Frazier confirming the news to Pitchfork after a video was posted to the band’s YouTube channel. The video, titled ‘Epilogue’ shows the two walking through a desert, wearing their helmets and leather jackets. One removes his jacket to reveal an energy pack on his back and the other touches a button on the pack. This causes the member without a jacket to walk away and blow up.

There has been no official reason given for the duo splitting up, but many fans have expressed their sadness over the situation. One fan said, “Daft Punk have just announced they have officially called it quits after 28 years. Genuine sadness. These guys will be musical legends forever." Another fan said, “Daft Punk 1993-2021. What an incredible influence they had in the world of music.” A third fan commented, “Daft Punk is…. Breaking up? It’s truly the end of an era. I love you guys. Thank you for being an entrance and gateway for music for me.”

Other fans were excited to see that the duo had released a video, only to realize that it wasn’t what they thought. One person said, “Everyone when seeing notifications: YES THEY ARE BACK. Everyone after watching: straight up sadder than what they were.” Another said, “I celebrated at first thinking they’re back, and a wave of realization hit me kinda hard.”
