DAFT Punk are a popular electronic music duo who are known for wearing robot helmets as part of their artist image.
The band have now split after 28 years.
What is Daft Punk’s net worth?
It’s thought that the combined net worth of the duo is $70million, which is just shy of £50million.
The Grammy award-winning band have amassed this mostly from their touring and albums which have earned them platinum certification.
Their album Discovery went triple platinum.
Who are Daft Punk?
Daft Punk was made up of French musicians, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
They met in the mid-’80s in Paris while at school as teenagers.
They released a song under a band named Darlin’ with a third person, but then received a review that called their song: “a daft punky thrash”.
This inspired their new name and they continued producing electronic music as a duo.
Their biggest tracks are Get Lucky, which features Pharrell Williams, and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.
When did they break up?
The band have split as of February 2021.
They uploaded a video called Epilogue, at the end of which a graphic appears on the screen that reads: “1993 – 2021.”
Variety confirmed the band had split after speaking to their publicist, Kathryn Frazier, though she declined to provide further details.
FAREWELL DAFT PUNK
What does Epilogue mean and how did Daft Punk announce their break up?
In the video the band are seen on a desert with timers on them – when the timers go down to zero they explode.
The artistic announcement is in keeping with the band’s style, who always wear helmets to conceal their identities while performing.
Their rep declined to tell Variety whether the pair would work separately or if a new project is beginning.
