Mason Noise joins forces with SANE

Our very own Mason Noise has officially announced his ambassadorship with the UK’s leading mental health charity, SANE.

The ‘bad boy of X Factor’ is donating 100% of profits from his hotly anticipated single, ‘Hold Me’, to the charity with the aim of encouraging people to talk openly about mental health and wellbeing.

‘Hold Me’ will be released next month in partnership with SANE.

Mason Noise

Mason Noise said: “SANE are a charity that are very close to my heart. For years I felt the need to hide the fact that I was struggling with depression and anxiety. I feared that it would make people believe that I wasn’t capable of reaching my dreams.

“Over the past year, I have watched people’s attitudes to mental health and wellbeing change. Slowly and surely, SANE and organisations like them, are proving that there’s nothing to be ashamed of.

“I want to encourage people to see the power in seeking an ear to talk to about what’s happening in their mind. Being given the opportunity to work with SANE is very exciting for me, and has helped me to achieve a comfortable state of mind.

“Never underestimate the power of being able to potentially help someone else. We all need a hand to hold, sometimes”.

Mason has struggled with mental health issues and anxiety since the age of 17, and after seeking solace in his spirituality, his world was torn apart again in May 2016, when his girlfriend was tragically killed.

Mason Noise continued: “The new track, ‘Hold Me’, is about my experiences but is still a pop record. It’s uplifting. The sentiment is about being there for someone.

“As soon as I had the bare bones of the track, I knew that I needed to do something special with it – so that’s the reason I decided to donate 100% of the profits it makes to SANE.

Marjorie Wallace, founder and chief executive of SANE, said: “We are delighted that a person like Mason Noise, who has turned his life around so successfully, should choose to support SANE. We hope that people like Mason who find themselves in a dark place will not suffer alone but reach out to us for understanding and help.”

Mason Noise’s debut single, ‘Hold Me’ will be released next month and will be available to download on iTunes.

X-Factor’s Mason Noise is Back with Debut Single ‘LOCO’

“The bad boy of X Factor” Mason Noise is back with his debut single which is to be released at midnight on 24th May 2017.

Mason Noise, X Factor, Music, Summer 2017

The Birmingham born singer whose real name is Mason Binnell, was one of the X-Factor’s most controversial contestants after slamming the show’s producers during a live broadcast, for cutting his airtime.  Since coming 7th during 2015’s show, Mason Noise has gone on to independently produce a debut single and EP, inspired by his journey to date.

Mason Noise said, “I come from a very rough, gang-affiliated, neighbourhood in Birmingham. I have escaped that route in life, and have been working hard on my music career, since appearing on 2015’s X-Factor.”

23 year old Mason has struggled with mental health and anxiety since the age of 17, and after seeking solace in his spirituality, his world was torn apart again in May 2016 when his girlfriend was tragically killed in a quad bike accident whilst on holiday in Turkey.

Mason Noise added, “The music I have been working on for the last twelve months has really helped me to deal with losing the love of my life.  I will never get over not having her by my side but I enjoy writing music about the love that I felt for her.  Music is what makes me whole and if nothing else, I feel very fortunate to have an outlet which can take me away from my dark places.”

Whilst on the infamous ITV show, Mason Noise was mentored by Radio1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw, who said “He was such a joy to work with” despite it being a bumpy ride in the beginning and described him as a “visionary”.  As well as impressing the show’s hosts, the singer also received praise from Nick Jonas for his cover of Jealous during his final performance.  Nick Jonas Tweeted, “Big shout out to my man @itsmasonnoise for doing Jealous! Don’t forget to vote! We need him in the show. #XFactor”.

Waine Turner, actor and three times world champion kickboxer said: “I’m so proud to support Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko rematch date confirmed!

Yogurt Top Media have had an unbelievable couple of months! Recently signing the Unified Heavy Weight Champion of the World Tyson Fury! Our partnership with the World Champion was announced across Tyson Fury’s Twitter account a couple of weeks ago before the rematch between Fury and Klitschko was announced today!

Tyson Fury, Fury, Heavyweight, Champion

Tyson Fury’s rematch with Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles has finally been confirmed for October 29 at the Manchester Arena.

The pair were originally set to have their rematch in July, but that fight was postponed after Fury suffered an injury in training and the two camps have since been locked in bitter negotiations for the past few months, with a new date now official.

Fury won the titles from Klitschko with a unanimous decision win November 2015 in Dusseldorf, Germany, and his uncle and trainer Peter Fury is confident that history will repeat itself.

“I’m delighted that we can finally get the fight back on and in Manchester on October 29,” he said. “After hard discussions we can now focus on giving the fans what they deserve; another barnburner of a fight. Team Fury will ensure Tyson is in the shape of his life to successfully retain his world titles.”

Fury is unbeaten in his career, with the 28-year-old winning all 25 of his professional bouts, with 18 of those coming by stoppage.

He has been promoted by Mick Hennessy ever since making his debut, and Hennessy admits the rematch has been a long time coming.

“Everyone involved has worked tirelessly to get the world heavyweight title rematch between Tyson and Wladimir back-on and I’m thrilled that it’s now officially confirmed,” he said.

“This is the rematch that the boxing world has been waiting to see and the anticipation is now at boiling point so expect a highly charged and explosive fight when the best two heavyweights in the world collide.

“As Tyson’s promoter I have 100 percent confidence that he will retain his titles in front of his fans and make it another memorable night for British boxing to remember.”

“We know that Wladimir will be in the best shape on October 29 and we are very confident that he will regain the heavyweight championships.”

The event will be shown live on BoxNation, with a head to head press conference between the men planned to take place next week.

An announcement on tickets is set to be made by the promoters soon. Tickets purchased for the original rematch date on July 9 remain valid for October 29.
