"The Mission", the new video from TOOL frontman Maynard James Keenan's side project, PUSCIFER, can be viewed below. The clip, crafted by Meats Meier — who has had a long history with Keenan, including work with both TOOL and PUSCIFER — was filmed in downtown Los Angeles and features Meier's inordinate animation talent.
"The Mission" features both Keenan and actress Milla Jovovich on vocals and has received a significant amount of radio airplay throughout 2009. The previously unreleased song will finally surface on the "C is for (Please Insert Sophomoric Genitalia Reference Here) E.P.", which is due out on November 10.
You can hear "Polar Bear", a new song from the EP, via PUSCIFER's MySpace page.

PUSCIFER will kick off its first tour with a swing through the Western U.S. on October 29 in Las Vegas (a Midwest/East Coast run is in the works for 2010).
In a recent interview with Noisecreep, Keenan stated that fans can expect nothing but to be surprised on the upcoming PUSCIFER tour, which runs through early December.
"Whenever you see a city with a double booking, it will be a different performance both nights," Keenan said. He went on to describe PUSCIFER as "a gathering place for other solo projects, as well as mine. Eventually, it will become more of a stable, core band, but initially it is definitely an experimental phase, with people coming and going."
