Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum (Princess) recently toured the UK in support of their album THANKS FOR COMING (2021) and is preparing to embark on a 12-city US tour.
The band is composed of Golden Globe® Award-winner Michael C. Hall (TV's "Dexter") on vocals, Matt Katz-Bohen of Blondie on keys, and Peter Yanowitz of The Wallflowers on drums.
The trio formed Princess (named by Katz-Bohen's daughter) while touring together with Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
The 2021 UK leg of their tour included concerts in Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester, London, Bedford, Birmingham, Swansea, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Liverpool, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, and Cologne.
They were scheduled to play in Kyiv, Ukraine, last year.
"We had to postpone the dates due to both the Russian troop buildup, and the COVID situation which was rapidly escalating," said Katz-Bohen.
"We love our Ukrainian friends and are very sad about this needless war. I should say that we also love our Russian friends who unfortunately are also at the mercy of a sociopathic autocrat. If anyone in the midst of a war can find peace and solace through our music, that is an amazing and beautiful thing."
The US leg of their tour starts March 20th in Pioneertown, California, and concludes on May 12th in New York City.
It will include stops in Costa Mesa, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Spokane, Seattle, Garden City, Salt Lake City, Denver, Houston, and New York City.

Keyboardist Katz-Bohen also plays keys for Cyndi Lauper.
He attended New York City’s LaGuardia High School (the “Fame” school), and has worked with Tony Bennett, Boy George, RuPaul, Miss Guy (Toilet Boys), Jody Watley, Lady Miss Kier, and Princess Superstar.
"The vibe that keeps Princess together is that it is uniquely ours," said Katz-Bohen. "We three are full creative and business partners, and we cherish that."
"I love working with icons like Cyndi or Blondie, and cherish that as well, but it is truly wonderful to be able to create and have one hundred percent creative control over what we do."
"We have an EP of remixes coming out," he said. "We also have a full-length album which should be out later this year. And lots more touring."
"Fans can expect bliss and total rapture at our upcoming shows."
