Thank you to the guys in You May Kiss The Bride for doing this for us! Make sure you check out their links below! Enjoy!
Q1. Where and how did you all meet and form the band “You May Kiss The Bride”?
Korhan(k0k0) and Alptuğ(Badboy) are cousin. Before the YMKTB, they started to play music together in different bands. Then, Korhan decided to start a new band called ‘ You May Kiss the Bride ‘ with different line-up. After lot of member changes Berkay(Fega) joined the band. Then, K0k0 called Badboy, they had an emotional phone conversation about future of the band and Badboy became a part of YMKTB. They needed a good bass player but it was hard to find a right one. Fega suggested his old bass player Enes(Mr.Okay) to the band and after, he showed his skills in the studio Mr.Okay was in action! Barış is the new guy for the band but boys met long time ago so that was the great decision for the band’s future.
