Michael Sheen to appear in (It’s Not War) Just the End of Love video

Michael Sheen will be appearing in the video for (It’s Not War) Just the End of Love due to be shot in early August as revealed by NME earlier today.


“It looks like Michael Sheen is gonna be in the video, which we’re really thrilled about,” Wire told NME.  “We’ve tried to recreate the classic ’70s chess match between Kasparov and [Bobby] Fischer.  That’s the kind of vibe behind it.  It’s real ’70s Russia – just that idea of ‘it’s not war, just the end of love’, I think a chess game really fits that.”

Wire added: “It’s a really serious intellectual game but, you know, it’s not World War Three.  Although the cold war chess games were kind of like wars played out on a chess board.  Me and James have come up with the idea for it.”
