Daft Punk Is Getting Scored Over Old Sci-Fi Movies and It’s Incredible

We found this wonderful piece of news from The A.V. Club and it is so awesome we had to bring it to you. Daft Punk in a way always brings up science fiction imagery. I mean the artists behind the helmets spent their careers from 2001 on as robots. With such dedication that they did

Alleged Daft Punk Alive 2017 Website Surfaces – Details Here:

This post was originally published on this site

We thought we debunked the Daft Punk ALIVE 2017 tour rumors, but they just keep growing louder. News of this new website, alive2017.com, popped up earlier this week, though it only began to reach critical mass today, and rumors are it could belong to the notorious robot duo. In the page source, coordinates are listed for the following locations: Paris, Los Angeles, London, New York, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Ibiza and Indio (the location of Coachella). Whether this confirms tour stops at these locations, or a tour of any kind, only time will tell. Check it out below.

Wesbite Genius also found a connection between the final line of the code and Daft Punk: Shep is a character from Daft Punk’s musical movie Interstella 5555.

However something about this just seems too easy. Giving away all the details in an easily accessible page source isn’t exactly Daft Punk’s style. And upon further inspection of the domain, we discovered the website was purchased 3 days after the release of Daft Punk’s collab with The Weeknd, “Starboy.” This only adds to our suspicions that the website might be fake. Not to mention the various discrepancies that the Daft Punk subreddit found in their examination of the website… However we’ll wait for the above 10/27 “Wake Date” to fully confirm the validity of this website. Either way, we’re hoping a 2017 Daft Punk tour is on the menu – whether this site is real or not.

Alleged Festival Lineup Leak Names Daft Punk As Headliner For 2017 Event [PHOTO]

This post was originally published on this site

Following the release of The Weeknd‘s new single featuring long-silent French duo Daft Punk, the pair of robots have just resurfaced on an allegedly leaked flyer for the upcoming Lollapalooza Chile installment.

The photograph was posted on Reddit via the r/DaftPunk subreddit on Thursday, and has already sparked conversation regarding the long-speculated trend of the group’s decade-spaced touring schedule. The first tour was in 1997, followed by one in 2007. If the pattern continues, Daft Punk will embark on tour again in 2017.

Despite the convenience of this rumor however, we can’t be sure as to the validity of the “leaked” flyer. On the skeptical side, the timing is just too perfect for such an alarming development in Daft Punk’s career. Whether their schedule will include tour date announcements and more music is yet to be seen.

Check out the flyer below, and see for yourself.

VIDEO: Daft Punk In The Studio With The Weeknd, Reportedly Making New Music

This post was originally published on this site

Daft Punk have been characteristically quiet since the release of their last album, Random Access Memories. Appearing like a flash and disappearing altogether once again is a favorite trait of the masked French duo, but now we have reason to believe that they are working on new music. Better yet, they’re in the studio with The Weeknd.

In a discussion with Billboard, Wendy Goldstein, Republic Records executive VP/head of urban A&R, let slip that she was working on putting together a studio session with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. When asked who she would work with if she could work with any artist or songwriter, she said…

“Actually, we have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’m a massive Daft Punk fan, and this is the first time that I’ve actually been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.”

The comment was made so swiftly and without so much as a blip on the radar that it’s basically gone unnoticed. It was by pure luck that we even found this information in the first place, and the fact that no one has reported on it is all the more astonishing.

Watch the video below starting at 2:39 for Goldstein’s comment.

The comment was corroborated last week in an upload to The Weeknd’s Facebook page wherein two Daft Punk action figures sat atop a speaker, with two robot emojis in the post. If that isn’t confirmation, we don’t know what is.
