Published Oct 05, 2016Daft Punk recently teamed up with the Weeknd on "Starboy," though they haven't released an album of their own since 2013's Random Access Memories. And while an "industry source" shut down recent rumours about the helmet-wearing robots heading out on tour next year, some new online clues have riled up the conspiracy theorists (or just really optimistic fans) once again.
A new website under the domain Alive2017.com was discovered, prompting Daft Punk detectives to speculate that a tour is, in fact, still in the works for next year.
The French electronic duo previously released live albums titled Alive 1997 and Alive 2007, and fans seem to be banking on the 10-year pattern continuing.
Reddit users have pointed out that a cursory look at the site's code reveals a series of numbers that could be interpreted as geographical coordinates — possibly revealing plans to play cities like Paris, Los Angeles, London, New York, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Ibiza and Coachella's hometown of Indio, CA.
The source code also reveals text that reads: "WAKE DATE 2016-10-27," suggesting that the site will officially launch on October 27 with some sort of special announcement.
Daft Punk have yet to address the rumours or confirm any upcoming engagements, so far all we know, this could just be the work of a troll with a vendetta against dancing robots and a lot of free time. Here's hoping it turns into something a little more exciting, though.
