Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum is a trio comprised of vocalist, lyricist, musician and Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie), and drummer Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood).
A theatrical sensibility is part of the trio’s DNA, especially in live shows, having met several years ago on Broadway during the production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum eschews traditional rock instrumentation in favor of a stripped-down synthesizer-and-drum attack, heard on their debut full-length album THANKS FOR COMING (released earlier this year), which follows their 2020 self-titled EP. Both have drawn praise from Paper, Alternative Press, Associated Press, Consequence of Sound, People, American Songwriter, Magnet, FLOOD, Forbes, Huffington Post, NME, Line of Best Fit, The Independent, Entertainment Tonight and more. A wealth of disparate influences flow into Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum’s songs – the glam, experimental, ambient music of David Bowie, Giorgio Moroder’s ‘70s disco productions for Donna Summer, ‘80s new wave dance music, contemporary electronic dance acts like Justice, and the roster of France’s Ed Banger label.
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum’s album Thanks For Coming was released in February 2021.
