Band ‘Daft Punk’ Announces Retirement
DAFT PUNK ANNOUNCES THE BAND IS RETIRING, BUT SKEPTICS DON'T BELIEVE WE'VE HEARD THE LAST FROM THE DUO
(CNN) – There won’t be “One More time” for Daft Punk and their days of going “Around the World” are over.
At least, that’s what the French electronic music duo wants you to think.
The pair released a video Monday announcing the band’s retirement.
In a style consistent with their techno-infused robot image, the video shows them walking around a desert.
Then, one of them removes his jacket to reveal a self-destruct pack, which the other activates, and then he explodes into smithereens.
Daft Punk’s publicist has confirmed the split, but that doesn’t really mean anything.
The whimsical act could always re-form under a different name or the members could pursue solo careers.
It’s also common for musicians who retire to come out of retirement in a few years.
