Michael C. Hall's the Lead Singer of the Electronic - Rock Band 'Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum'

As you may know, apart from an amazing actor, Michael C. Hall has a great voice too. Years after his lead role in Broadway's 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch', he and former colleagues Peter Yanowitz and Matt Katz-Bohen decided to form a rock/electronic band

During the celebrated Broadway production, Hall portrayed the lead in Hedwig, Yanowitz (the Wallflowers) was on drums, and Katz-Bohen (Blondie) served as the music director. Then, when Yanowitz and Katz-Bohen went out on the Hedwig tour, they forged a bond. “We were like, ‘We should hang out when we get back to New York,’” says Yanowitz. And little to his surprise, they actually followed through, getting together to jam, and coming up with the initial demos.

“And after a few months, we had several jams, and were like ‘God, it would be amazing to have a singer,’” Yanowitz recalls. Then, during a dinner with Hall, he played the actor some of the jams. And after loving what he heard, Hall was quick to volunteer. “He said, ‘If you ever need a vocal on these, let me know.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, come over tomorrow!’” Yanowitz says. Hall then took a stab at adding his voice to top off what the duo had previous created. “He got out his notebook and just started making words, and came in with some words.” And this, per Yanowitz, was “the fun spontaneous beginning of the project.” 

The songs on the EP were recorded early on in the band’s genesis. And after the demos were ready, Hall called in acclaimed mixer, Tom Elmhirst, whom he was introduced to through David Bowie during the Lazarus musical. “He agreed to mix some tracks for us,” he says. 

The trio describes themselves as “gothadelic rocktronic” – “that’s a combination of Goth and psychedelic, and then the electronic,” says Hall, who laughs and says “ultimately though, I think we’re rock.” Yanowitz chimes in: “yes, with electronics.
