Did you check the front pads?
If the drums are not worn evenly, new shoes can result in noise. Likewise if the shoes have a different width, same would occur.

If the noise is confirmed to be from rear brake, you need to recheck the installation. A spring could have been installed incorrectly esulting I n it rubbing against something.
