Founded in 2006, Returning We Hear the Larks is the Ambient Metal solo project of Jak Noble, a student from Bristol, UK. The name is taken from the poem by Isaac Rosenberg. Noble began writing and recording pop punk music in 2005 with his younger brother George. He soon began experimenting with his own hard rock music and releasing it online under his own name. He released a short debut album in the spring of 2006 entitled Asphyxiation, which is still available online in a few locations.
