Armistice

Album: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)
  • This was the final track of French rock band Phoenix's fourth studio album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.
  • Phoenix vocalist Thomas Mars commented to the Washington DC free newspaper Express: "With the track listing you always know the beginning and the end of every record. We pay attention to the last lyric of the last song because it leaves you with a very strong impression. And this had the most poignant lyrics for a finish. You want to end up with something that ends up with a little weight."
