This is typical of sticking rear parking brake cables. When the cable doesn't fully release, it keeps the shoes away from the anchor pin on top of the backing plate. That makes them grab the drum too easily. Also check the wheel cylinders to see if they're leaking. That will make the shoes grab too hard.
