New York-based indie Razor & Tie has signed rockers the Chemistry, and plans to release the band's debut later this year.

The Chemistry is based in Temecula, Calif. and has toured with the Used, Yellowcard, S.T.U.N. and Story Of The Year. The quintet will begin recording its debut album in May with ex-Third Eye Blind guitarist Kevin Cadogan at the producer's desk.

Razor & Tie is eyeing a fall release date for the set, which will be mixed by Karl Derfler (Motley Crue, No Doubt, Dave Matthews).
