Even the bassist Greg Kriesel isn't happy: ''If the next album is something we're not happy with and things have gotten tired and old... that'll be it,'' he told the Bakersfield Californian yesterday.
The band's sixth album, ''Conspiracy of One,''has only sold about 1 million copies. The group's 1998 release, ''Americana,'' sold 10 million.
When pressed, Kriesel admitted that; ''We've kinda come down to hit singles,'' as a means to acceptable commercial sucess ''I give it five more years.'' he added
