The Neon Handshake is the debut album by London band Hell is For Heroes. The CD was released in February 2003 on Chrysalis Records. Latter day Symposium (former band of McGonagle & Birch) songs Peshwari Naan and To The Lighthouse were re-worked into respective HIFH tracks You Drove Me To It and I can Climb Mountains.
Rock Sound Magazine awarded it as "Album of the Year".
Later, in 2005, readers of Kerrang! magazine voted The Neon Handshake the 58th best British rock album ever.
