Brake shoes in constant contact with drum

Could this problem be solved by replacing the wheel cylinder? I just recently replaced the shoes and my left side is having this problem. It seems the cylinder is seized up a bit.

Did you back the adjuster off at all when you changed the shoes? If you installed new shoes, and the adjuster is still set for your old, worn shoes, that would explain it.

After thoroughly looking it over I found out that it was a seized up ebrake cable, so I just cut it and that solved my problem 100 percent, I don't use the emergency brake anyways

You'll feel differently on the day that you DO need it. I recently had a brake line bust while driving, and had my parking/e-brake been cut, I'd probably be dead right now. Willing to risk your life over a little laziness regarding a cable?
