Only a few short months after the release of their sophomore album Year Two, genre-defying duo Tim De Gieter and Sigfried Burroughs of DOODSESKADER have teamed up with French video game developer Digixart to release “Plastic Skin / Warm Flesh (from Tides of Tomorrow)”, a new single that will accompany Digixart’s highly- anticipated 2025 video game release, “Tides of Tomorrow”.

“Plastic Skin” undoubtedly explores new sonic grounds for Doodseskader; while the song is unlike anything De Gieter or Burroughs have released before, their signature sound is undeniable as the listener is swept along on a journey full of twists and turns, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Each lyric, ever honest and introspective, manages to evoke a feeling of hope — yet also of desperation. Punctuated by Burroughs on the drums, the song grows and swells until every sentence manages to feel like a punch to the gut.

“I wanted to encapsulate the feeling of what it is like to feel alone, while still holding out hope for something better,” De Gieter comments. The song paints comfort as a double-edged sword; as De Gieter sings “The future that I see / Is wrapped in metal sheets”, the listener is left questioning as to whether that is, in fact, a good thing.

‘Plastic Skin’ was recorded and mixed by Tim De Gieter at Much Luv Studio and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden.

DOODSESKADER is a merging of the minds of Tim De Gieter (Amenra, Much Luv Studio) and Sigfried Burroughs (Kapitan Korsakov, Paard).

Throughout their four years of existence, DOODSESKADER has been relentlessly pushing the envelope of what it means to be a “heavy” band. From the punishing blend of hiphop and hardcore of their debut album “Year One” to the critically acclaimed experimental sonic onslaught that is “Year Two”, they’re breaking free of any form of categorization.

The duo has been compared to genre-defying trailblazers such as Ghostemane, Show Me The Body, and Ho99o9, however, they clearly bring their own sonic palette to the table.

The red thread in all of this has been their brutally honest and introspective lyrics. Far from your run-of-the mill type of band, DOODSESKADER uses their instrumentation as a sonic backdrop for the emotion and message they try to convey; their music serves as a mirror for life itself. Sometimes brutal, sometimes fragile, sometimes energizing, but always unexpected.


“When I was 15, I moved out of my parents’ place for the first time. I began living with my then-girlfriend and her parents, and even though I felt like my future was very uncertain, I still found comfort in the fact that I’d left a home situation that had not been good for me at that time in my life.
My first day living there, I vividly remember lying on the bed in the middle of the day, taking in the warmth of the sun. The bed had these flower-printed sheets; they were so soft, and I felt more at ease in that moment than I had in years. To this day, it’s still one of my warmest and purest memories. The relief I felt is difficult to put into words.
I wrote the ‘wrapped in metal sheets’ lyric as a sort of contrast to how I felt that day. With the gradual passing of time, I can’t help but feel like everything has become so heavy, cold, and convoluted. I often find myself craving the easiness I felt in that split second almost 20 years ago. That’s the feeling I set out to capture with ‘Plastic Skin’: uncertain, yet still hopeful.”

“When I heard the first demo version Tim made of ‘Plastic Skin’, I was floored. It was so unlike anything we’d put out before and I was beyond excited to help bring the song to life. The day we recorded percussion was, I think, one of the most fun days we’ve had in the studio so far.
Experimenting with different percussion instruments really helped add that dimension that you can hear in the song. We recorded everything in one day and sat together while Tim mixed until the late into the night. It was such a different process for us creatively and I’m sure it’s only the beginning of what’s to come.”
