DEXTER may be back on our screens with the revival series gaining widespread praise among critics and audiences after an eight-year hiatus but that’s not all of Michael C Hall Scots will get to see this December.

The Golden Globe-winning actor and the titular character of the much loved US show is flying across the Atlantic to perform the European tour as the frontman in the avant-garde band, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum.

The trio is a result of Headwig and the Angry Inch, the Broadway musical Hall starred in.

That’s where he met Blondie keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen and renowned drummer Peter Yanowitz.

The band takes an electronic style and forgets traditional instrumentation with a stripped back drum and synth approach.

Asked how they’d describe their music, they called told The National it was like “kaleidoscopic sound weather”.

It’ll be the first time they’ve played in Scotland as a band, and they said they can’t wait to come to Glasgow in December.

“I did a job based in Manchester and from there took trips up to the Highlands and some islands off the west coast with my wife,” Hall told The National.

“Her people are from that part of the world - her maiden name is Macgregor. We went Rob Roy's grave and we loved it.

“We didn't want to leave. We absolutely loved it. I haven't been to Glasgow though. I've only been to more of the countryside in Scotland. But I'm really excited.

“Both for the place and to play for the people who show up there because I love the people I met up that way.”

Keyboardist Katz-Bohen has been to Scotland several times, and shared his excitement to get back.

He said: “With Blondie, every time we go to Europe we hit Glasgow because the audiences are just superb. Absolutely superb.

“We love the vibe of the city. So we can't wait to go there with Princess and play our songs there.”

Drummer Yanowitz has even more experience of the country, sharing his love for Celtic – even when they’re on the losing side.

“Scotland is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to,” he said. “The Isle of Skye, places like that are some of my all-time favourite places.

“And I love Celtic football club. I've been to Celtic Park and seen Celtic lose. It was my fault though because I was there that day that they lost. So apologies to Celtic.”

The National:

With a packed schedule, the band will have little time to explore the city, but Katz-Bohen said: “You have to understand for us just being on a street in Glasgow is a wonderful experience.”

He added that the band are ready to eat lots of “vegan haggis” and “put whisky in our oatmeal” before praising the people of Glasgow.

Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum will play Mono in Glasgow on December 5.
