IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

SOURCE: CANT GET DRUMS OFF BACK BRAKES
If you can spin the drum that means the brake shoes are not tight to the drum so just take a hammer or dead blow and hit the drums a few time that should loosen it up. You can use bolts to push it out but I can't remember what size they were off my head, I know a 12mm socket will fit over it.

The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.
