Solo once again, Izzy began working on the tracks that would become "Commercially Inept" (2014). "Commercially Inept", cut in Marietta, Georgia and produced by Grammy-nominated and multiple Gold and Platinum artist Joey Huffman along with Kevin Sellors, would produce another charting single for Izzy. "Rapid Decline", the lead single from the album, would peak at #44 on the Billboard Rock Digital Downloads chart late that same year.
Mid-2017 brought the news that Miller would collaborate with the rock band Black Market Salesmen for a new release. In August, "Mr. TV Man" was released. The first single from a then-upcoming record, the release immediately went to #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list and also reached a high position on the iTunes sales chart. Soon afterward, the news was released that "American Times", a six song EP by Miller and the Salesmen, would be released in December.
"It was early May and I had just gotten back from Texas when, a few days later, my (then) girlfriend called me to inform me that she was leaving me for her ex. Considering that I was completely blindsided and thought everything was going great, things kind of took a turn for the worst after that.
When we walked into the studio not all that long after the whole ordeal, everything was cloudy. The arrangements weren't ready, there was no plan of what to cut, and there was no real plan to release any of it. About ten minutes later, it all started falling into place but I wouldn't realize that until very recently. The songs on this record really capture the six months or so after that split and, listening back to them, it's weird... It was almost like I was on autopilot during the sessions for 'Precipice'. The only thing that was certain during the process is that everything was uncertain."
