Activision has announced Band Hero will be coming to the DS, and will be playable with a new Drum Grip peripheral.

The game had previously only been announced for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. Like those games, the DS version will let you combine lead guitar, bass, drums and vocals to perform songs.

And just as the Guitar Hero On Tour games come with a special finger-activated peripheral, Band Hero will come with a Drum Grip add-on. Presumably it'll also slip into the DS Lite's GBA cartridge slot, though that's yet to be confirmed.

The game will feature 30 master recordings from the likes of Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, The Killers, KT Tunstall and Fall Out Boy. A Rockstar Editor will let you customise band members, and there will be Stage Stunts plus a No Fail mode.

The Band Hero games are due to launch this autumn.
