Blake Carpenter to release his first new Minstrel’s Ghost album since the highly acclaimed The Road to Avalon in 2012, the new TMG album will boast 12 track and is a chilling tale unlike any other, this release also signifies the end of The Minstrel’s Ghost era.

Jack: A Different Tale is a story of birth, despair, trauma, murder, and suicide. The story of a boy and his life, growing up in a dark world, exposed to dark things bludgeoning his fragile mind and leading him to morbid adulthood of brutal and calculated murder ending with his emotional ride to suicide.

According to Blake; even though this album was meant to be a pivotal starting point to a future on the road bringing TMG to the world it is also a fitting end to a dream I had for a long time, something that could have been great but the fates apparently saw differently.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your support over the last 10 years and your patience over the last 5 whilst I dealt with everything that came at me during that time.

I am not giving up making music but I am letting the ghost move on so this will be the last TMG work to come from me.
