The former frontman of the now-defunct Australian band Silverchair, Daniel Johns, has avoided time behind bars with a 10-month intensive corrections order to be served in the community over a high-range drink-driving car crash.

He has also been disqualified from driving for seven months and ordered to fit an alcohol-reading interlock device to his car for 24 months when he gets his driver's license back.

Police facts tendered in Raymond Terrace Local Court said Johns, 43, was heading north in his SUV when it crossed onto the wrong side of the Pacific Highway and collided with a light commercial truck traveling in the opposite direction.

Lawyer Bryan Wrench said his client was at pains to show the court how seriously he had taken charge since entering rehab and his discharge in June, remaining abstinent from alcohol.

Following the incident, Johns was soon to release his new album, FutureNever, which triggered the mental health issues he has faced since his meteoric rise to fame as a teenager, the court was told.
