Clutch of songs, modes to play.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has announced the arrival of a Band Hero demo on Xbox Live.

The file is 534MB and contains playable tracks by Finger Eleven ("Paralyzer"), Katrina & The Waves ("Walking on Sunshine") and Taylor Swift ("Picture to Burn"). Party Play and Sing-Along modes are available.

Band Hero is the pop spin-off form the metal-heavy Guitar Hero series, featuring playable characters Adam Levine (Maroon 5) and Taylor Swift.

Retailers agree upon a 6th November release date, although we can't find solid confirmation. We're checking with Activision.
