“The music sizzles with tension, subtly pivoting between ‘80s darkwave and simple synth pop.”–Consequence“There’s a sort of palpable theatricality in the music of Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum. That’s not an accident.”–Billboard“The band explores electronics from multiple angles. From celestial Beach Boys vibes to soulful electro-pop grooves and the foreboding and whimsical, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum are creating intersecting hybrids of introspective dark pop and contemporary readings of post-punk.”–Alternative Press“Michael C. Hall goes full-on indie rock God.”–Huffington Post“[The] indie rock band led by Michael C. Hall spreads its wings with music that’s hard to pin down. The members defer when asked to describe their sound, preferring instead to say it’s what you might expect to hear in a butterfly museum. If that’s the case, expect the museum to play a mix of glam, dreamy ‘80s New Wave, acoustic folk, Nine Inch Nails intensity and lots of David Bowie.”–Associated Press

PRINCESS GOES – vocalist, lyricist, musician and actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under, Lazarus), drummer Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood) and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie) – quickly drew critical acclaim for their much-buzzed-about 2021 debut album, THANKS FOR COMING, featuring stand out singles “Nevertheless,” “Sideways,” and “Tomorrow’s Screams.” A swirl of the glam, experimental, ambient music of David Bowie, Giorgio Moroder’s ‘70s disco productions for Donna Summer, ‘80s new wave dance music and contemporary electronic dance acts like Justice, PRINCESS GOES crafts a sound all their own that vividly comes to life on stage during their captivating, hypnotic and impassioned live performances (including sold-out US and UK tours) led by the charismatic showmanship and signature voice of frontman Michael C. Hall.
The band has drawn praise from mainstream and tastemakers alike including – Pitchfork | Rolling Stone | Spin | Paper | Consequence – and many more. Stay tuned for more exciting updates and information in the coming weeks!
