Official statement from Daft Punk’s management:
DAFT PUNK IS IN NO WAY ASSOCIATED WITH THE THIRD TWIN
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 rumors 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 pretenses. We would like to ensure Daft Punk’s audience is not taken advantage of by this fraudulently promoted show and strongly discourage anyone to buy tickets expecting Daft Punk to play at this festival, either as themselves or under any other pseudonym.
Mitchell Leib, Walt Disney Records’ President of Music & Soundtracks, tells Billboard.com that the notion that Disney turned down any music that Daft Punk composed for “Tron” is completely untrue.
“We never threw out any of their material, ever,” says Leib. “I want to dispel any of the rumors about that material by that alias group being any derivative of our ‘Tron’ music, because it’s not at all. There’s nothing about that music that has anything to do with ‘Tron’ or any of the original conceptual music that was done.”
