JERSEY CITY, NJ | February 19, 2018 – If you’re looking for a delicious piece of darkly immersive music to wallow in during the long winter days, look no further – The Components‘ new EP continuum. will satisfy your deepest cravings. A carefully crafted blend of energetic punk, grunge, and indie-rock ensnares the angsty emotions and brings them to life, providing cathartic release and emotions to new heights.
Lead vocalist and guitarist, Ronnie Sena shares, “continuum. is a collection of songs that reflect dark moments in my life, those songs might as well be considered journal entries.” While The Components was originally launched as a solo project by Sena, he joined up with Zoe Ekonomidis (drummer/backing vocals) in 2016, after working together in another musical project and finding their complimentary songwriting styles. Released last month on Mint400 Records, the eight-track EP has already been gaining attention with Joe Wawryaniak of Jersey Beat saying it’s, “A totally kick-ass blast of pure sweaty n’ sinewy noise and fury.”
continuum. is available for purchase and streaming on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and all major digital retailers now. The band will be performing regionally this spring, with upcoming show dates listed below.
“I have no words, just awesome. The riffs, the drumming, it’s pure rock and roll.” – Lou Koller (Sick of It All)
What’s your favorite part of touring in NJ?
Getting out and exploring. It’s always fun to jump into the different local scenes and meeting new people.
How would you describe what life is like performing versus everyday life?
In all honesty, my day to day life is a lot different than the feeling I get behind a drum kit. I feel more confident, I feel complete, and I can let it all out. There is no other feeling in the world that could replace it.
Where do you see your band going over the next few years?
Continuing to strive and keep moving on to bigger and better things More exposure, more traveling, and more music.

ABOUT THE COMPONENTS:
The Components are a two-piece rock band from New Jersey. The band is composed of singer/guitarist Ronnie Sena and drummer/backing vocalist Zoe Ekonomidis.
As soon as that first thunderous chord hits, the Components are dead set on making that performance as powerful and passionate as possible, pulling no punches as they put everything they can into every strum, every scream, every swing. The band’s live presence has described as electrifying, drawing inspiration from older bands like Nirvana and the Dead Boys, to more modern artists like Frank Iero and Senses Fail.
