Michael C. Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Lazarus), Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood) and Matt Katz-Bohen’s (Blondie, Cyndi Lauper) avant-indie trio Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum has released their new single, “Love American Style.” The song puts listeners in a trance as it journeys through a vibey, cerebral voyage that’s both mesmerizing and thought-provoking from start to finish. The band calls it their “ode to sadomasochistic relationships, both micro and macro.”
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum will release their debut EP on April 2nd (full track listing below).
Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum offers an intoxicating mix that transcends genre, and that is on display in the band’s previous singles “Ketamine”– a hypnotic, intoxicating and somewhat creepy dreamscape – and pulsating dance track “Come Talk To Me”. Both showcase completely different sides of the experimental band. PRESS HERE to watch the video for “Ketamine” and HERE to watch the video for “Come Talk To Me.”
Born from a shared love of pushing art into uncharted territories after first working together on the set of the Broadway smash-hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Hall, Yanowitz and Katz-Bohen create adventurous and bold experimental arrangements that incorporate everything from distorted synth rock and ethereal electronics to dreamy folk and R&B.
Michael C. Hall has always been a musical talent. He is a longstanding Broadway performer, having played leading roles in Chicago, Cabaret, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and was selected by David Bowie to star in his musical, Lazarus. He has also earned many accolades for his acting chops, including an Emmy nomination for his work on the HBO drama Six Feet Under, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for the acclaimed Showtime series Dexter. Hall assumed the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway on October 16, 2014 and performed the role until January 18, 2015. His bandmates boast similarly prodigious resumes. Peter Yanowitz began his career playing drums in The Wallflowers before going on to co-found indie stalwarts Morningwood and work with artists as varied as Natalie Merchant, Yoko Ono, Andrew W.K., Allen Ginsberg, and Billy Bragg & Wilco, who enlisted him to perform on their seminal ‘Mermaid Avenue’ collaboration. Keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen spent the last decade touring and recording with Blondie, in addition to working with the likes of Boy George and Cyndi Lauper.
