    2017 Warning: Cryptic Promotion

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    It feels like every day 2017 tour rumours are going to get more frequent, so before mass hysteria envelopes, let's be clear: Daft Punk have never done cryptic, coded roll outs of their art. Whenever they plan on performing or releasing music, it is announced via press kits, which are published by sites such as Pitchfork, and also relayed on their official Facebook page.

    Making a new youtube identity and putting triangles and codes and Daft Punk imagery on it, for example, is something any of us could do in minutes. Given the last 20 years of their output, that method is not how they promote or present their art.

    We need to keep in mind that the people who make fake tour rumour sites and videos are only trying to get Reddit, and forums like this, to react. Don't waste your time on that rubbish. Speculation is fun but hysteria over fake material has been something Daft Punk fans have generally learned to avoid since the post Discovery days. I have a feeling the Weeknd collaborations aren't the only thing we'll get from the robots this year, so let's stay tuned to their official lines of communication!

    Re: 2017 Warning: Cryptic Promotion

    It is beyond me how come every time a "misterious" video or any "leak" hits the internet there are people (in fact, a lot of them) who are falling for it and spreding the rumour.
    This topic is almost as old as the Internet, yet people are still believing in something like No End, Skydive, Magnetic Centerpiece etc.
    Good to know I'm not the only one frustrated by this.

    This is exactly why I value the 4th-5th Album Shenanigans thread so much.

    Re: 2017 Warning: Cryptic Promotion

    Yes, you're right on the money in pointing out that these cryptic "promotions" can be made by anyone and don't go through any official source whatsoever. Also, while it's okay to hope and to speculate, it's silly to look for patterns in a band that typically doesn't follow a pattern. DP always talk about doing something different every time, so why assume that because they toured in 1997 and 2007, that they must be preparing for a tour in 2017? True, the Daftendirektour began and ended in 1997, but Alive 2007 began in 2006. So if we're going on the 10-year theory, they're already a year late with tour #3 (or more accurately, if they start a tour every 9 years, they should have done one back in 2015.)

    That thread I find problematic in itself, because it was created (and for the first few thousand posts) discussed what was posted on the Official Daft Punk website. For the last few years it's just a random mess, off topic discussion, random rumours and tidbits. It negates the point of a forum where you create individual topics to discuss things in their categories so when someone comes to the forum they can see an overview of what is discussed and click what they want to see and engage in. It also devalues a lot of the work that was put into the original Official Website thread, because every day it becomes more and more buried under off topic discussion.

    I think it was said they had contributed to a track on that album.. It's been anticipated since the early RAM days. Strange its taken so long to come out. But that's a discussion for another thread.

    It's been so long I'm scared it won't happen anymore.

    95% of those cities had an Alive 2007 tour date. This is just someone with too much time on their hands wanting hype.

    Maybe it's the same individual behind the fake website.
