Oh Daft Punk, why are you doing this to us?

On the one-year anniversary of their shocking split, the legendary electronic music duo have returned to social media. The resurrection was—of course—cryptic in nature, but it wasn't long before Daft Punk announced a rare livestream of a helmetless show in 1997.

It all started today after Daft Punk's verified Instagram account shared an image reminiscent of their debut album Homework, but refrained from including a caption.

The robots also launched a Twitch channel, which was immediately verified. The page is listed as the "Official Twitch Channel" of Daft Punk. They also created a Twitter account.

Less than an hour later, Daft Punk posted an old flier from the Los Angeles stop of "Daftendirektour," the duo's first-ever concert tour which spanned from January to December 1997. The fabled performance took place at the Mayan Theatre on the December 17th of that year.

This post naturally led many to believe that a reunion tour is in the works.

A press release was then shared with announcing a one-time-only livestream of the "Daftendirektour" L.A. show on Twitch, which has since concluded. The remarkable footage showed Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter without their iconic helmets.

Daft Punk have also announced a vinyl reissue of Homework in celebration of the seminal album's 25th anniversary. The Homework vinyl LP—along with a vinyl reissue of Alive ’97—is set to release on April 15th and can be preordered on February 22nd here.
