Daft Punk Have No Plans to Tour

Daft PunkDaft Punk have no plans to tour Random Access Memories. The French electronic duo - Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo - are set to release their fourth studio album next week and although their 2013 comeback has already received rave reviews, they don't believe they can bring the record to life on stage.

When asked about the possibility of a tour by BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, they said, "We're not interested in touring right now for a few reasons. We have just spent five years working on this record trying to bring life back to the art of recording."

It seems even their family are keen for them to take their LP around the globe, with manager and unofficial third member Paul Hahn admitting he often gets nagged about the group's plans. "My mum asks me every day if we're going on tour. Everybody does. We have been very inspired to do something in the live performance space, but for us right now we're very concentrated on the launch and getting this music out to people in a way that's positive. We want this album to have a cultural and artistic impact," he told Billboard.
