Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum, an indie/pop/experimental band featuring actor Michael C. Hall (of Dexter and Six Feet Under), drummer Peter Yanowitz (the Wallflowers) and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie), has (finally) announced a proper headlining tour of the United States.

The group released its debut full-length album, Thanks for Coming, in February of 2021. Boasting an especially intriguing, genre-defying mix of styles that call to mind New Wave, dark synth-pop and, naturally, David Bowie (Hall portrayed Thomas Jerome Newton in Bowie’s Lazarus musical), it was one of the year’s more interesting releases.

Here’s a bit more about Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum, the origin of the band’s name and more:

Taking their name from an idea that Katz-Bohen’s four-year-old daughter had for her imaginary band, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum eschews traditional rock instrumentation in favor of stripped-down synthesizer-and-drum attack. 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. 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.
