Background

Tim Commerford formed Future User along with Jordan Tarlow, a multi-instrumentalist who plays keyboards and does the programming of the music. The tandem teamed up with Commerford's lifelong friend, session drummer Jon Knox and Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave producer Brendan O'Brien who played guitars on the album. It is the first band where Commerford sings lead vocals as he only contributed backing vocals with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave.

On September 1, 2014, the band released their first video "Clockwork" where Commerford, disguised as the persona 'S.W.I.M.' subjects former tennis star John McEnroe to waterboarding. comic book writer, editor and publisher Stan Lee makes a brief cameo in their second video, "Supernatural". "Mountain Lion" features cyclist Lance Armstrong as well as a voice message from Armstrong challenging Commerford to a personal cycling contest. Commerford also performs a blood transfusion and injects a PED in the video. When he reveals himself in the final part of the video, he lights himself on fire.

Their debut album, SteroidsOrHeroin, was released through the iTunes Store on February 24, 2015 and was mixed by LA Engineer Tom Syrowski. To celebrate Record Store Day on April 18, 2015, the band released a limited edition 12-inch vinyl version of the album. Commerford used his own blood to help color the 180-gram red-colored vinyl. There is also a limited edition clear vinyl version of the disc available.

The video for "Voodoo Juju", which was inspired by a real-life accident of Commerford's, shows him undergoing spinal surgery, with good friend and bandmate Tom Morello playing a greedy doctor and Rush members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson featured as Canadian doctors. The video depicts the United States healthcare system as money-focused, in contrast with the one in Canada.
