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
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.
