Default rear brake clicking

I had new drums and stuff put on the truck a few months ago.after about 1000 miles it started making this noise...when i am going slow,just before u come to a stop at a light or pulling into a parking spot or under 10mph and you apply the brake there is a loud clicking noise.sounds metal on metal to there a pin on the axle behind the brake cylinder that if it was not on there would cause the noise? hot as hell out and i wont have time til this weekend to check it out anyway so any advice would be great.thanks

Rear drum or disk brakes? If rear drum, I suspect your star gear needs to be tightened or the backing plate is loose.

I'd also check to make sure there is nothing interfering with the brake pad or shoe sweep area.
