Finally after nearly a year of speculation Daft Punk’s management have released a statement answering a question on every fans lips: “are Daft Punk releasing music as the Third Twin?” The answer is no.
Until recently Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have not commented on the situation, but when the Spanish Arenal Sound Festival hinted at a connection between Daft Punk and the Third Twin, their managers released the following response:
“It has been brought to the attention of Daft Punk’s management that the promoters for the Arenal Sound Festival in Spain have recently issued a press release in which they claim that a band called The Third Twin is ‘directly connected’ to Daft Punk.
“This is completely untrue. Recent press reports are based on rumours instead of facts. Daft Punk is in no way associated with The Third Twin and the promoters for the Arenal Sound Festival are promoting the show under false pretences.”
