Inspect the hand brake cable over its entire length and the individual little spring loaded lever arms on the rear calipers themselves. You may think the hand brake is off because the interior hand brake lever is down but - with two calipers being affected simultaneously - I would suggest the hand brake cable is bound or seized somewhere or the spring loaded caliper lever arms are somehow wedged on (or at least not retracted fully.)
