“Hall’s voice is astonishing and sounds even better live than on the band’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘THANKS FOR COMING.’”
–Under the Radar
“Michael took to the mic and his breath-taking, faultless vocals just soared across the room. There were definite goose-bump inducing dark goth-rock moments. It was mesmerizing, the incredible sounds pumping out and seemingly pulsating through the audience member’s bodies like an electrical charge.”
–Louder Than War
“Tying everything together is a sense of quiet drama, one that Hall sells impressively as a front man; impassioned one minute and unsettlingly dead-eyed the next, he encompasses each track on its own terms.”
–Manchester Evening News
“There’s a sort of palpable theatricality in the music of Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum. That’s not an accident. Since gelling on [Hedwig] then coming together to make music, the guys have merged their love of rock and electronic music in the vein of ’80s outfits like Eurythmics into a spacious, often moody, ‘rocktronic’ sound…”
“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. At the center of it is Michael C. Hall’s considerable vocal/psychic range.”
–Alternative Press
“Michael C. Hall goes full-on indie rock God … 1980s-inspired, synth-pop groove. It’s as if he and his bandmates consolidated the chaos of 2020 into danceable exuberance.”
–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
 “Throughout his career, Michael C. Hall has shown a natural flair for versatility. In his band, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum, Hall’s impressive vocals join the instrumental works of Peter Yanowitz from The Wallflowers and Matt Katz-Bohen from Blondie. Together, the supergroup fuses styles like classic rock, funk and electropop.”
“The music sizzles with tension, subtly pivoting between ‘80s darkwave and simple synth pop.”
NEW YORK, NY – May 4, 2022 – On the heels of a successful, sold-out series of spring tour dates, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum (Michael C. Hall, Peter Yanowitz & Matt Katz-Bohen) have announced a July headline tour.

Princess Goes recently announced details of the Ketamine Remixes EP, and shared the “Ketamine (ULTRAPOP REMIX)” by Detroit Collective The Armed – PRESS HERE to listen.

To celebrate, the band will perform another sold-out show at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge the night before on Thursday, May 12, and a second show was just added due to overwhelming demand. PRESS HERE for tickets.
Led by charismatic frontman Michael C. Hall, the band’s live show is exciting and eerie, mesmerizing and impassioned. “When they began to play, magic occurred,” said When The Horn Blows. “From the opening notes of their set, the trio were a sight and sound to behold. Piercing synth tore through the venue as the night set off on an explosive journey of bass heavy electronica and almost vaudeville-esque crooning. Meanwhile, the rows of lights shining through the smoke gave the venue an almost ultraviolet feel, as if the entire show was just a shared hallucinogenic fever dream.”
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum’s 2021 debut album THANKS FOR COMING showcases the band’s myriad influences that converge to create the sound that has been earning critical acclaim since the release of the band’s self-titled EP from the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, 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. Fueled by synthesizers and drums, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum is a swirl of 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.
The band is currently in the studio working on new music. Stay tuned for more updates and information in the coming weeks!
