15th Anniversary Neon Handshake Tour
London post-hardcore band, Hell is For Heroes, will be playing at Portsmouth Pyramids Plaza on Friday 23rd of February as part of their 15th anniversary tour for album The Neon Handshake. It's been over 10 years since the band last released an album, but fans are do doubt excited to see Hell is For Heroes return after announcing they were taking an hiatus in 2008.

The name comes from a 1960s war film starring Steve McQueen. Before that, band members Will McGonagle and Joe Birch were playing in another band, Symposium. Hell is For Heroes formed not long after that band split in 2000, and they played their first gig in London in early 2001. In their early years the band had a real focus on live shows, but they also released a fairly steady stream of singles.

The Neon Handshake was their first full length album release. It received positive reviews and hit number 16 in the UK charts. The album was released in February 2003, and was followed by Transmit Disrupt in 2005 and a self-titled album released in 2007.

Hell is For Heroes will be playing at Pyramids Plaza at the Portsmouth Pyramids Centre on Friday February 23rd, with doors opening at 7pm. They will be supported by guests 'A' and Vex Red.

Tickets are £22 and can be purchased online. The event is all ages, but under 14s will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult and under 21s will require ID to purchase alcohol. For more information visit the Pyramids Live website or the Hell is for Heroes Facebook page.
