Many models of composite dark matter feature a first-order confinement transition in the early Universe, which would produce a stochastic background of gravitational waves that will be searched for by future gravitational-wave observatories. We present work in progress using lattice field theory to predict the properties of such first-order transitions. Targeting SU(N) Yang--Mills theories, this work employs the Logarithmic Linear Relaxation (LLR) density of states algorithm to avoid super-critical slowing down at the transition.
