Yep. The brake not wanting to release makes me think that a broken piece of lining is getting wedged between the drum and another piece of lining that is still attached to the shoe. Basically causing a condition where the brake lining instantly becomes twice as thick as it should be. A broken lining could leave a bare spot on the shoe or an exposed rivet that could cause a grinding noise. Does it unstuck when you pit it in reverse?
