About Face is the second studio album by Australian alternative rock band #1 Dads, released in August 2014 via Pieeater Records.

#1 Dads are an Australian alternative rock band devised by Tom Scary (aka Tom Iansek) lead vocalist-guitarist of Australian musical duo Big Scary. He formed the group, initially named Dads in late 2010, as a side project during down time and plays music which is "more acoustic than electronic in construction" compared with the parent band.

For the second album Tom involved other musicians in the song-writing process and the first song released from the album Return To was written with Tom Snowdon from the Melbourne band Lowlakes. According to their website, "the song started out with just the piano riff you hear at start, but strangely once I came up with that I heard Tom’s voice instead of my own (which I guess is a result of all the producing work I’ve been doing for others recently) so I got in touch with him and after a few jams we had a song down".

Airling and Ainslie Willis also feature on the album.

About Face debuted at No. 80 on the ARIA Albums Chart; by mid-September of the following year it had spent 34 non-continuous weeks on the related ARIA Hitseekers Albums top 20 chart.

For the 2015 promotion of About Face a live backing band with Gus Rigby on saxophone, Tom Snowdon (of Lowlakes) and Ainslie Wills were used.

At the ARIA Music Awards of that year #1 Dads were nominated for Best Male Artist for the single, Nominal.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Return To, So Soldier, My Rush, God Can Promise and Homeward Found.
