During the first part of the interview, Hall shares the origins of his band’s name, Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum. He talks a little bit about the inspiration for their song “Ketamine” and how he met the other two members of the band — Matt Katz-Bohen and Peter Yanowitz. Hall wraps up the first portion by sharing his experience meeting the late David Bowie. Watch the first part below.

In the second part, Hall and Colbert dive more into New Blood. Hall shares why now was the best time and reveals his pitch for the show’s title. He also describes a little bit about an interesting item fans have asked him to autograph. Find the second part below.

Dexter: New Blood picks up a decade after the events of the Dexter finale. Dexter now lives in Iron Lake, NY, under the persona Jim Lindsay. He has a new job, a new girlfriend, and is making an effort to better himself. But when a case rocks his small town, Dexter finds that resisting the urges of his Dark Passenger isn’t so easy after all.
