The Ketamine Remixes EP will be released on May 13 via the band’s own Morpho Music, and the full track listing can be found below. 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!
