Armistice Live is a live concert DVD and album release from New Orleans electro-rock group Mutemath. The video was released by Teleprompt Records and Warner Bros. Records on October 12, 2010. The DVD features Mutemath's performance from the Tabernacle in Atlanta that was filmed on their Armistice Tour in the Fall of 2009.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Andrew Leahey awarded the album 3.5 stars stating "Recorded in late 2009 at an Atlanta concert hall, this album is essentially a showcase for Mutemath’s second album, which traded the epic pop/rock of the band’s self-titled debut for a more angular, experimental sound. Most of the material comes from that record, with several older songs (most notably “Typical,” the band’s biggest hit) tossed it for good measure. Armistice was a meticulously produced album, filled with all sorts of studio flourishes and late-night ambience, but the material translates surprisingly well to a live setting, where the studio reverb is replaced by the natural acoustics of Atlanta’s Tabernacle venue... The actual music is the highlight here, though, since a textured record like Armistice isn’t the easiest thing to re-create on-stage. As a result, Armistice Live isn’t your typical fans-only concert album; it’s a testament to Mutemath’s strength as a band, and arguably their most interesting release to date. ".[1]
