Veteran rockers Pink Floyd have dashed fans’ hopes of a comeback after they launched a dramatic countdown to a major announcement that turned out to be the release of an anniversary CD box set.

The band split in 1995 and briefly reunited for the Live 8 charity gig a decade later, leaving fans clamoring for more shows.

They threw fans into a frenzy this week by setting up a website in reference to the 20th anniversary of their final record, 1994’s “The Division Bell.”

The website featured a digital countdown and a space-themed video with views from the International Space Station set to a Division Bell track, sparking speculation they were planning to announce a reunion tour or a one-off performance for charity.

However, the countdown ended on Tuesday with the announcement that the band will release a deluxe edition of “The Division Bell” to mark 20 years since it first hit shelves.
