In a video posted to their socials overnight, French electronic legends Daft Punk have announced their break-up.

Formed in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, the duo are easily one of the most influential electronic acts of all time – although they only released four studio albums across 28 years (as well as the 2010 'Tron: Legacy' soundtrack).

Their most recent album was 2013's 'Random Access Memories' that vaulted the pair back into the conscious of the mainstream with the album topping charts in 20 countries and winning 4 Grammy Awards including Album Of The Year.

Titled 'Epilogue', the eight-minute video features portions from Daft Punk's 2006 avant-garde science fiction movie 'Electroma' (about two robots on a quest to become human).

The pair are walking together in a desert, with one trailing the other before coming to a stop. The other returns and after a lengthy stare-off flicks a switch on the back of the first robot instigating a countdown.

You'll have to watch for the outcome, before 'Random Access Memories' track 'Touch' starts playing.

Kathryn Frazier, Daft Punk's longtime representative, has confirmed the break-up to several media outlets.
