Activision has launched the Band Hero website, with a contest containing prizes include a console Band Hero bundle and a DS Band Hero bundle.
Seems like the Band Hero DS Lite Band Kit includes the Guitar Grip peripheral and a “drum skin” peripheral, which was unknown before.
Don’t know if this means you can tap a drumbeat with your fingers or if you would use plastic sticks to beat on the DS as it sits in your lap.
Still, drumming and beating on stuff is fun.
More over on Joystiq.

Activision just confirmed Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5 for launch this autumn.
Band Hero is to carry an E10+ rating, and will feature “top-40 hits” to a “broad family audience”. It’ll use guitar, drums, bass and microphone.
DJ Hero is to include “hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance”. And those turntable shots Twittered earlier have just been released as PR.
Guitar Hero 5′s more of the same, basically.

The rumour du jour is that Activision will be further expanding the Guitar Hero franchise by the end of this year by adding Van Halen and Guitar Hero 5.
According to a source close to the publisher, Hard Rock: Van Halen will be released in August, Guitar Hero 5 in September, DJ Hero in October and Band Hero in November.
The 2009 offerings will be made available for PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
Activision also plans to another release another DS Guitar Hero title in 2009, says that report, after Guitar Hero: Modern Hits comes out.
DJ Hero and Van Halen are already expected, per Bobby Kotick during the ActiBlizz financial call, but no specifics have been given on Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero.
Eurogamer contacted Activision and was told that the company does not comment on rumor and speculation.
